Thanks for subscribing to the Raw Food Report!
Here is the 3rd part of a 6 part series on transitioning to a raw food diet from the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet)
Part 1: For the next month, stop drinking coffee, milk, soda, fruit juice etc. The only thing you should drink is good old water. Bottled, iced, filtered, tap, cold, warm, it does not matter, just drink water. Replace all your other drinks entirely. Also, make sure you drink a MINIMUM of 48 ounces per day. You may not think this is a big deal, but wait and see your results at the end of the month!
Part 2: For the next month, continue with Part 1 and in addition eliminate beef and pork from your diet. Sorry folks, no more ribs, bacon or burgers. You can continue to eat fish and chicken, but try not to substitute for beef, just continue eating your normal amount. Instead of beef try substituting nuts, seeds, and vegetables. This is an important and powerful step that will get you much closer to eating raw and vegan if you can get through the next month!
This is what you should have been doing for the last 2 months. You should have experienced some weight loss, as well as increased energy by drinking more water and stopping the caffeinated and sugary drinks. In addition you should have saved some money on your grocery bill from not buying the most expensive items, meat, as well as all the sauces and seasonings that go along with them.
Part 3: For the next month, continue with Parts 1 and 2. In addition, eliminate cheese and sour cream from your diet. This will help you with your digestive track, and will also help eliminate a lot of salt from your diet. In addition to these changes, incorporate some form of daily exercise above and beyond your normal daily routine. If you already work out 2 to 4 days per week, include some light exercise on your days off. This can include walking to run errands when you would usually drive etc, as well as taking stairs instead of elevators.
